This tiny adorable man is named Pilot! Pilot is an 8ish year old Chihuahua who was found as a stray in Philadelphia and was brought to the animal control shelter. Despite his epic side-eye, this friendly little man caught the attention of a City of Elderly Love foster family and was quickly whisked away to foster care! He's now on the hunt for a forever home!

Pilot is a tiny dog with a big personality! He spends the majority of his day finding the largest pile of pillows and blankets in the house to perch himself upon. Pilot currently lives with two small children, two large dogs and a cat. He gets along well with everyone since they are respectful of his space and love of naps. Pilots favorite activities are snuggling under the covers, sitting in your lap and taking walks. Even for an older guy he can walk with the best of them! He only has two teeth left as a result of a recent dental cleaning and extractions at our vet but that doesn't stop him from perking his pointy ears to ask for treats! Pilot would do best in a home where he can receive frequent bathroom breaks and with someone who can continue working on house training (small dogs, small bladders!), but will definitely repay you with hilarity and snuggles!

Pilot was diagnosed with a heart murmur and received a cardiologist consult to determine the cause which was identified as a leaking mitral valve. While you wouldn't know that Pilot had any issue since he's got great energy and spunk, it does mean that he requires extra consideration when going under anesthesia and will likely need checkups a couple times a year to make sure it's not causing him any addition issues. But the good news is that he was given the all clear by the cardiologist to be neutered and received a dental under sedation and he did great!

Pilot is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and negative for heartworm and lymes disease. Interested in meeting him? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!
